The five-year veteran's dominant afternoon rightfully secured him MVP honors, making him only the 10th defensive player to receive the award, and third linebacker overall. Miller's two strip-sacks of Cam Newton provided immeasurable benefit to a
The Denver Broncos will attempt to work out a long-term contract with Von Miller in the offseason, but if inroads aren't made, the franchise tag will be used on the pass rusher, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Miller has matured from the Broncos' most-fined player as a rookie in 2011 to one of the NFL's premier pass rushers, accruing double-digit sacks in four of five professional campaigns. Only a six-game suspension and a torn ACL in 2013 stopped him from making it 5-for-5, but he's now the backbone of a defense that will attempt to corral Cam Newton and the Panthers in Super Bowl 50. In 18 games this season (including playoffs), he's notched 13.5 sacks among 42 tackles, to which he's added four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
Von Miller tallied three solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.
Miller recorded his 10th sack of the season on Sunday along with his fourth forced fumble in a defensive battle against the Raiders. He's now recorded a sack in five straight games, and he's shown no signs of slowing down. Miller is one of the top pass-rushers in the game and he'll continue to hold very strong IDP value moving forward.
With Miller not failing a drug test over the last two years along with a new drug policy, Miller has been removed from the program and will no longer require multiple tests each week.
Miller violated the league's drug policy in 2013 and was suspended for six games.
